We are working on a Bitcoin project for which we need to have the bitcoin node. The point is that we do not need to have the entire bitcoin node downloaded but only from the moment we start the project and therefore we opt for pruned node. The current setting is
pruned = 1, because we don't need to prune the old blocks every X size of blocks.
So, after starting the node with pruned configuration, we see that old blocks are still being downloaded because in a matter of 20 minutes we had more than 10 gigabytes used space.
We have a wrong idea about "pruned node" or we have something wrong or partially configured?
